The trailer can be seen here, the full documentary will be released the 10th of March 2012 on Pagani's Youtube channel.

Jay Leno's Garage gets its hands on the Huayra

The video seems to be throwing a server-side error. Follow the link to watch it on NBC.com.

Horatio Pagani invites Jay Leno on a nearly whiplash producing ride in the new Pagani Huayra (why-ra) for a piece on Jay Leno's Garage. The car was inspired by the feeling of plane right before it leaves the tarmac during takeoff. From the sound of the turbochargers at full tilt to the obvious g-forces being placed on its occupants, we think Pagani may have accomplished its goal.

Pagani Huayra denied U.S. access

In a blow to Pagani, the U.S. government has denied a petition for exemption from provisions set forth by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, specifically its advanced-air-bag requirements. Pagani made the request for the exemption, stating that otherwise it would endure substantial financial hardship. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) denied the request because it believes small manufacturers now have better access to such technologies since the rule was first put into place. It notes that Spyker and Lotus, who also have exemptions pending, are trying to develop the airbags in-house or are currently working with suppliers to gain access to such systems.

With access to the U.S., Pagani was hoping to increase sales to 35–45 a year with 6–12 of that being from the United States. In its petition, Pagani estimates it would make 5,398,000 euros (approximately $7,693,229) in net income during the period of 2011–2014 without the exemption, compared to 8,613,000 euros (approximately $12,275,247) in net income during the same period if an exemption were granted. Pagani insists that without the exemption, it could not obtain the required air bags (and thus enter the U.S.) until 2015. Pagani was also hoping to increase production, which is currently capped out at 25 units a year. It had plans to expand its production capacity to 50–60 units per year worldwide with the capital it would take in by selling cars on U.S. soil.

The NHTSA started requiring advanced air bags in 2000 to improve the protection for occupants of all sizes, belted and unbelted, in moderate-to-high-speed crashes and to minimize the risks posed by air bags to infants and children in low-speed crashes.

Pagani announces Huayra dealer network

Pagani Automobili has announced its new dealer network for the United States. The first two dealers are located in California: the Auto Gallery of Beverly Hills and British Motor Cars in San Francisco. Pagani indicated that it is still evaluating future dealer locations.

Both dealerships will begin taking orders for the Huayra in mid-2011, with the first customer deliveries expected for early 2012. The announcement of the two dealers marks the first time U.S. enthusiasts will have the opportunity to obtain a Pagani automobile in the states.

Due to its exclusivity and limited production, neither dealer will have a Huayra on their showroom floors, but Pagani plans to have a demo car in the U.S. that will be made available for select events, client viewings, and possible dealer events starting in 2012. The company also welcomes clients to visit its factory in Italy, for the best possible way to experience Pagani.

Video walkaround of the Pagaini Huayra Prototype 4

According to the videographer, the Pagani Huayra on display at Motori e Sapori, a small county fair in Italy, is Prototype 4 (PT4). Finished in matte silver with a brown interior, this particular car will be used as a test mule for new special-edition Pagani Huayras as they are being developed.

High-speed crash in Pagani Zonda included Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van

Don’t believe everything you read on Facebook and don’t believe all the comments you read in a Facebook comment application. However, a “Steffen Mc” did comment on our post about the 199-mph 62-mph Pagani Zonda Clubsport crash story, clarifying that the accident included a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van and not the McLaren SLR as we had alluded.

The now-infamous 199-mph Pagani crash was actually only 62 mph?

199-mph Pagani Crash

News of two people surviving a crash in a Pagani Zonda at 199 mph quickly made headlines Friday afternoon. Now we have word that the man behind the wheel is Steffen Korbach, a millionaire investor that recently purchased the infamous Gemballa tuning company. Korbach also owns Prestige Cars magazine and that magazine’s web site is reporting the crash occurred closer to 62 mph and that it was not nearly as bad as everyone is making it sound.

The crash occurred on Italy’s A10 Autostrada, a section of road that connects Italy and France and that local police say is hard to manage due to difficulties enforcing cross-border traffic fines. Korbach did not deny that he was racing a Mercedes-Benz in his Pagani Zonda F Clubsport when he lost control of his vehicle, hit a guardrail, lost a wheel, overturned, and then collided with the Mercedes. Korbach said he is grateful that everyone walked away from the crash unscathed.

Car magazine scans of the supposed Huayra hit the web

A scan of the next cover of Car magazine was posted on Teamspeed.com, revealing what is being declared the Pagani Huayra to the motoring public. The release of that scan was followed by CarsUK.net releasing images it has of the Huayra to draw in visitors to its web site. It is an often shadowy world, where big car magazines obtain the pictures and information of an upcoming car in return for keeping everything under wraps until an exact date of release is met. Early reveals may make you the talk of the automotive town, but it will also cost you for breaking a contract and you may lose the ability to obtain information early in the future. It is business ethics at its best.

The early release of what is being called the Huayra comes on the heels of the fourth of five teaser videos being release by Pagani.

The world's most expensive cars for 2011

Okay. The money on these supercars would be better spent on feeding the needy or some other charity cause. But these aren’t just toys of the rich. They are more than just money spent on the owner’s own happiness. They are an investment. Despite millionaires everywhere taking a hit when the global economy took a slight turn for the worse, supercars have continued to make leaps and bounds in price. Why? Where normal investments have failed, investors that want their money to make money for them are now turning to things they can enjoy and get a slight return on in the long run. There is a risk, like any investment, of losing money but selective buyers of wine, art, guns, watches, and automobiles can enjoy as good or better returns than the stock market while at the same time gaining the enjoyment of owning such items.

As Tom duPont, publisher of duPont REGISTRY, recently told the Orlando Sentinel: "It's like playing the stock market.” If your collector car increases in value, great. But if it doesn't, "You'll have something you enjoy driving, or at least admiring."

Below is a list of the most expensive cars offered for 2011, with a limit of one per manufacturer:

[via Telegraph.co.uk, Forbes, and the Orlando Sentinel]

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport
Base MSRP: $2,600,000
dR Used Price: A used non-Super Sport Bugatti Veyron can run anywhere from $1,175,000 to $1,400,000 with a slew of special edition cars being worth much more.
